“that’s the joy of traveling alone. You collect a series of magical experiences all for yourself.”
Cassie De Pecol, Expedition 196: A Personal Journal from the First Woman on Record to Travel to Every Country in the World
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of true romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness. —Hunter S. Thompson”

“But I want to share with you my experiences in six different countries. It was these countries that opened my eyes to the positive humanity and morality of our world. These are the same countries that are degraded the most in American and Western media; they’re the ones that governments have made us fear for decades. The truth is that these countries are actually brimming with natural beauty, humanity, culture, kindness, and allure. North Korea, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Colombia, Sudan, and the Central African Republic. These countries are all regarded as among the most dangerous in the world. How about Tuvalu, Nauru, Kiribati, Djibouti, Bhutan, Andorra, Brunei, Dominica, and Liechtenstein. Ever heard of those? I hadn’t either.”

“Travel a little bit, and I guarantee you will find the kindness of humanity in even the most unexpected of situations.”

“I see the world as a giant ball floating in a galaxy of the unknown, which makes me wonder if our ant lives are even worth the struggle or ups and downs it takes to survive.”
Cassie De Pecol, Expedition 196: A Personal Journal from the First Woman on Record to Travel to Every Country in the World
“We are all perishable and mortal, made of a cocktail of compound elements. We are equal in that we each go through the same process of biological life only to disintegrate back into the elements from which we’re made.”
Cassie De Pecol, Expedition 196: A Personal Journal from the First Woman on Record to Travel to Every Country in the World
“people we meet at the most unexpected of times. In these people, we find both similarities and differences. There’s no right or wrong way to travel, have an experience, or live this life. It’s yours and yours alone. As my travels have taught me, even those in the most pressing and limiting situations can find ways to make life their own. Know that and use it to pursue the unimaginable. It might just mean inspiring the person sitting right beside you.”
